Ngorongoro Lion’s Paw

Ngorongoro Lions Paw, Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania


Ngorongoro Lion’s Paw was designed to echo the majesty of nearby Ngorongoro Crater. The camp’s tented suites feature an enviable view of the cradled Lake Magadi east of the caldera. Days are spent on safari drives, village visits and hot-air balloon safaris, or simply relaxing at the bar or lounge area, perhaps spotting large-tusked elephants and endangered black rhinos through binoculars.


Each Lion’s Paw suite frames the iconic Ngorongoro landscapes, with unrivalled panoramic views. Furnishings were chosen to reflect Tanzanian artistry and envelop guests in luxury and comfort. Double rooms are inviting sanctuaries complete with modern amenities, plush bedding, a private ensuite bathroom and a balcony.

The Family Room is ideal for those traveling with children, offering extra space in a living area and comfortable bedrooms. An exquisite Honeymoon Suite is also available, with a comfortable king bed, cozy sitting area and lavish ensuite bathroom. All rooms feature graceful mosquito netting, power points for charging, hot showers, a flush toilet, laundry service, radio communication to staff, bathrobes and 24-hour electricity.


The Lion’s Paw Camp Kitchen combines local authenticity with comforts from home using locally sourced, fresh ingredients to create exciting meals, complemented by the finest beer, wine and cocktails. Bush dining under a blanket of stars or during the sunrise or sunset, as well as convenient in-room dining, are available.

Befitting its location next to the Ngorongoro Crater, Lion’s Paw takes advantage of the proximity of the UNESCO World Heritage Site through game drives, hot-air balloon safaris and more. Guests can venture out to seek the Big Five, glimpse over 400 bird species and visit the historic Olduvai Gorge. Safaris into the Serengeti plains can be arranged, particularly enticing during the migration season, as well as guided nature walks and Maasai village visits.
